Disney+ delivers first looks of new Spider-Man, X-Men, Groot and Marvel Zombies animated series – TechCrunch

Disney+ made its debut at San Diego Comic-Con 2022 (SDCC), giving Marvel fans a whole host of shows to look forward to. This was Marvel Studios’ first appearance at the event in three years, and boy did they deliver.

Marvel Studios officially unveiled the first looks for all of the new original animated series coming to Disney+ Twitter. Spider-Man: Freshman Year is slated to premiere in 2024, X-Men ’97 is coming in fall 2023, season two of What If…? will be released in early 2023, alongside other announcements like Marvel Zombies and the very lovable “I Am Groot” follower.

Disney+’s animation panel at SDCC underscores the streamer’s commitment to the animated original series that many subscribers love, as well as its commitment to continuing the Marvel franchise.

The studio shared new information about Spider-Man: Freshman Year, such as a second season titled Spider-Man: Sophomore Year. There were also reports that the prequel series will have an appearance by Charlie Cox playing Daredevil. This makes sense since (spoilers, sorry) the character Matt Murdock was featured in a post-credits scene in Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Speaking of recognizable villains Also circling in the new Spider-Man series are Dr. Octavius, Chameleon, Speed ​​Demon, Scorpion, Butane the Pyromaniac, Harry Osborn and Amadeus Cho.

Last year “What If…?” premiered an episode titled “What If…Zombies?” that introduced the zombie concept to the Marvel Cinema Universe. The Marvel Zombies animated original series is now official and will explore the undead side of superheroes. It will premiere exclusively on Disney+. No release date has been announced.

Originally released in 1992, X-Men: The Animated Series ran for 76 episodes before being canceled in 1997. This new version, called X-Men ’97, promises a return of the mutant superheroes that will surely fill the hearts of many ’90s kids who grew up watching the show.

The company then unveiled the trailer for “I Am Groot,” the collection of five original shorts that will stream August 10. This will be the only Guardians of the Galaxy spinoff set to premiere in 2022.

Disney+ announced yesterday “Deadpool”, “Deadpool 2” and “Logan” appeared on the platform. This may result in parents correcting their parental controls settings due to the R ratings, while others may now be having a Wade Wilson and Wolverine marathon.

Independent of Marvel, Disney+ also released a short teaser for National Treasure: Edge of History, which sadly had no trace of Nicolas Cage but will introduce a new character, Jess, played by Lisette Olivera. The show also got its own panel at Comic-Con.
